Ross wrote in the caption how much she loved him and how he makes her laugh. She added that she got her comedic chops from her dad. The post amassed more than 57,000 likes.

SHE GOT HIS HUMOR

Ross, who has been awarded a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series Musical or Comedy, is known for her roles in the comedy series, "Girlfriends" and "Black-ish."

She said in a previous interview that she got her funny side from her dad, adding that she's grateful she got that attitude of her dad who could laugh at himself and at life.

Although she is admired by many for her ability to make audiences laugh, Ross admitted that she never considered herself a comedian or funny. She said, though, that she's "really silly."

Among her memorable performances was impersonating Beyonce at the 2016 Black Girls Rock! Awards. She has truly made a mark in the world of comedy.
